MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The application dubbed "Russia-China: the Main Issues" was launched at the ceremony held in the Chinese Cultural Center in Moscow and was timed to coincide with the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to the Russian capital.
"In fact, we have created a communications channel not between the diplomats or businesspeople, not between the big fishes, but between ordinary people. I think that the alliance of the two nations is invincible in the world. It is very important factor of the stability in the world and the condition for development of our economies, our societies and civilizations," Kiselev said, adding that the Russians were interested in information from China, about China and about Russian-Chinese ties.
Vasily Pushkov, the head of international projects of the Sputnik news agency, which is part of Rossiya Segodnya, said that the new application was the first bilingual application with various content about both Russia and China.
